La Mancha, Spain

Vivacious, peppy and very fruity with tons of damson, blackberry and muscovado flavours. Lovely stuff!
Try with charcuterie or spicy pork spare ribs.
Torre Solar is an blend of 95% Tempranillo and 5% (Bordeaux variety) Petit Verdot grown in low-yielding, dry-farmed (no irrigation) vineyards. A green harvest is undertaken during the season, where some bunches are picked and discarded, with the remaining berries benefiting through extra ripening and concentration. Only "free-run" wine is used (and not the coarser "press" stuff) and maturation is 9 months in French, American and Hungarian oak.
La Mancha is the world's biggest single delimited wine region, encompassing a jaw-dropping 30,000km². Located 60km SE of Madrid, the extent of its DO-classified vineyards alone exceeds that of all of Australia's combined! Its specialty used to be a pale but strong red wine that was actually made with white grape Airén tinted with red juice. But since the 1990s the trend has been to make 'proper' reds, mostly from Cencibel/Tempranillo.
